Reception and CSU Today update


Stay the day…or as long as you can.

CSU2U Alumni College grew out of what was historically a local cocktail reception in southwest Florida. In recent years we’ve added educational content with our award-winning faculty, and the feedback has been tremendous—so we’re offering even more. You may attend the entire day, or as long you’re able to commit. What’s most important to us is you connecting with one another, and you connecting back with CSU.

The Hotel

The beautiful Marriott Sanibel Harbour Resort & Spa is our “Campus” for the day. You’ll experience an unforgettable getaway on the campus. The resort is located on the Punta Rassa, an 85-acre peninsula on San Carlos Bay in Fort Myers, Florida. The resort is just a short distance from Sanibel and Captiva Islands, featuring beautiful beaches and top attractions.  If you’re interested in staying overnight, access our group rate by using the corporate code: csucsur in the corporate promotional field at marriott.com home page. 

What to Wear

As much fun as it might be to dress like you were 19 again, we won’t put you through that—unless you want to. The dress code for CSU2U is Florida Resort Casual.
